The day I wrote this post was one that had been long awaited! We cut wheat today on May 16 after sitting for days of waiting for moisture levels to get low enough to cut. The perfect moisture to cut wheat is 13%. We sort of figured out it was probably due to the early spring and already ripened wheat. The wheat was ready to cut but the dew and cooler temps in the mornings (like a typical spring in TX) were messing with our ability to get it cut. It was after 3:00 when we FINALLY got started. Reading this post and seeing the pictures makes me really excited about heading south again.
Recently, Lacy shared the following video on Facebook and it got the ‘ole gypsy blood pumping! It was especially fun to see a recognizable telephone booth. This particular phone booth is located in Lodgepole, NE. One that I know I waited for lengths of time (due to other harvesters using it) to use – there were no cell phones! This brings back so many memories of being on the road nearly 36 years ago.
Because it is the first day of 2013, I’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year! I’m excited to begin a new year of memories and life changing events! The one we’re all anxiously waiting the most is the birth of Curt and Jamie’s baby! Then…harvest and being on the road once again!
I received a blog recap from WordPress with some statistics I found of interest and you may too:
My busiest day was on November 29 with Dutch Oven Pot Roast - 637 views
My blog has been viewed in 94 countries – WHOA NELLY!
The post that received the most comments - In a Split Second Thank you for your prayers & concerns for our family as we dealt with that scary moment in time!
And last but definitely NOT LEAST - In 2011, my blog received 5,100 views. In 2012, it received 47,000 views (this deserves another WHOA NELLY)!
I look forward to 2013 and I’m so excited to share the custom harvesting lifestyle and our crazy family with you the whole step of the way!
